One does not live the Lisbon experience without passing through, the streets will be narrow and disorderly, the smells will be diverse, the noises will be confused with the sound of the Portuguese guitar. But the charm is that. The authenticity and spontaneity of the neighborhood will seduce you in a minute. Alfama is, in addition to the eternal winner of the contest of popular marches in Lisbon, one of the oldest and typical neighborhoods. Here the Arab influence is clear. Starting with the name “Alfama” which derives from al-Hamma (baths). Two areas were defined: an aristocratic zone (Alfama do Alto) within the Moura Fence and another more popular (Alfama do Mar). Christian influence has widened the boundaries of these areas. However, today still feel the environment of the Casbah with alleys, arches and staircases. In Alfama, you will feel in a small village. Talk to the neighbors, go to the grocery store or the tavern, listen to fado and see the Tagus. Everything is possible here. The viewpoints of Portas do Sol and Santa Luzia are the ones that offer you the most incredible views of the city. Even over the neighborhood, you will find the Castle of St. George. If you are passionate about sacred art, do not miss the Church of Santo Estêvão and São Vicente de Fora, go through the Chafariz de El-Rei and see one of the most beautiful fountains in Lisbon. Any visit should be made on foot, the cars do not circulate through many streets. Because the fado is part of Alfama, enter number 1 in Largo do Chafariz de Dentro. Here you can get to know the whole history of the most Portuguese music of all. It’s the Fado Museum. If you see a building with a facade full of protrusions, not surprising, it is the famous House of the Beaks. In Alfama, there are many restaurants that can offer excellent meals. For those who want to go further, there is even the Santa Apolonia Station.
